VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE/ March 10, 2022 / Falcon Gold Corp. (TSXV:FG)(FRA:3FA)(OTCQB:FGLDF); ("Falcon" or the "Company") is delighted to announce it has acquired, via staking, a very large and strategically located land position in the Valentine Lake South Area. This new land position consisting of 605 claims (15,300 hectares) is contiguous to Marvel Discovery Corp, Matador Mining, and Tru Precious Metals Corp (TRU). The Property also lies along strike from the Valentine gold deposit which hosts 6.8 million ounces of gold (Moz. Au) (all categories) and is now under development (https://marathon-gold.com/valentine-gold-project/). Falcon has immediate plans to commence high resolution magnetic surveys upon approval of exploration permits.

During 2021, 22 holes were drilled by TRU on their Golden Rose Project, contiguous to the Valentine Gold South Project, and assay results are just now being released. The first release of results includes 12 metres (m) grading 1.01 grams per tonne (g/t) Au from drill hole WL-21-12 and 7 m grading 1.71 g/t Au from drill hole WL-21-06, including 2.39 g/t Au over 4m (https://www.trupreciousmetals.com/news/tru-precious-metals-continues-to-intersect-gold-in-new-drill-results-from-golden-rose-project)

Falcon's Chief Executive Officer, Karim Rayani commented, "This is an impressive land position along the Valentine structural corridor. Our in-house studies have concluded that these crustal scale deformation zones host Newfoundland's larger gold deposits. They commonly have second- to third-order structural components much like the gold deposits along the Cadillac-Larder Lake and Destor-Porcupine fault zones of the Abitibi Subprovince of Ontario and Quebec. With Marathon & Matador as neighbours, we are ideally situated between two of the most significant gold deposits in Newfoundland. Our next steps are to run a high-resolution magnetic survey which will help map this large territory with braided shear zones which lie proximal to these major fault zones."

Valentine South Property

Structurally controlled orogenic gold deposits in Newfoundland are associated with crustal-scale fault zones within the Central Newfoundland gold belt. These major fault zones include the Baie Verte-Brompton Line, the Cape Ray Fault Zone, the Red Indian Line, and the Victoria Lake Shear Zone (Figure 2). The largest known gold deposit in Newfoundland occurs at Valentine Lake (Marathon Gold Corp,) in the footwall of the Victoria Lake Shear Zone. To date the Marathon Gold has discovered five (5) deposits along a 20km trend and together these represent the largest undeveloped resources in Atlantic Canada with reserves and resources of 6.8 Moz. Au. Also notable with the area is the Matador Mining Cape Ray deposit which hosts 837,000 oz. of Au (https://matadormining.com.au/cape-ray/). The newly acquired claims lie within the Valentine Lake Structural Corridor and in an area of very little historical exploration. Recent structural interpretations of regional scale geophysical surveys led Falcon Gold to the staking of this large land package due numerous interpreted parallel trends and tertiary splay zones which are considered highly prospective for gold mineralization.

Valentina Delivers Hot Chili’s Highest-Grade Result 8m grading 5.7% Copper & 24g/t Silver

(NewsDirect)

Valentina Delivers Hot Chili's Highest-Grade Result 8m grading 5.7% Copper & 24g/t Silver

Highlights

· New assay results from the Valentina copper deposit confirm a potential second high grade satellite addition for the Company's low-altitude, Costa Fuego senior copper development in Chile

* Copper Equivalent (CuEq) reported for the drill holes were calculated using the following formula: CuEq% = ((Cu% × Cu price 1% per tonne × Cu_recovery) + (Mo ppm × Mo price per g/t × Mo_recovery) + (Au ppm × Au price per g/t × Au_recovery) + (Ag ppm × Ag price per g/t × Ag_recovery)) / (Cu price 1% per tonne). The Metal Prices applied in the calculation were: Cu=3.00 USD/lb, Au=1,700 USD/oz, Mo=14 USD/lb, and Ag=20 USD/oz. Average fresh rock metallurgical recoveries used for Cortadera were Cu=83%, Au=56%, Mo=82%, and Ag=37%. Average fresh rock metallurgical recoveries used for Productora/Alice were Cu=89%, Au=58%, Mo=60%, and Ag=0%. 1 including 3m unsampled outside of metallurgical test area.

Hot Chili Limited (ASX: HCH) (TSXV: HCH) (OTCQX: HHLKF) ("Hot Chili" or "Company") is pleased to announce the highest-grade drill intersection recorded by the Company to date.

First assays returned from drilling across the historical Valentina high grade copper mine confirm a significant 120m strike extension to the deposit, recording 8m grading 5.9% CuEq (5.7% copper (Cu), 24.1g/t silver (Ag)) from 27m downhole in reverse circulation (RC) drill hole VAP0009.

Valentina and its neighbouring San Antonio satellite copper deposit (Inferred resource of 4.2Mt grading 1.2% CuEq (1.1% Cu, 2.1g/t Ag) for 48kt Cu and 287koz Ag, reported March 2022) are located immediately to the east of Cortadera, the centre-piece of the Company's Costa Fuego, coastal range, copper-gold hub in Chile.

Both deposits represent shallow high grade open pit opportunities, with the potential to provide front-end ore sources and make a positive material impact on the payback period and overall project economics of the Costa Fuego copper-gold development.

Impressive First Assay Results from Valentina, More to Come

Hot Chili's recently completed phase-one drilling programme at Valentina primarily focussed on proving continuity of the mineralised trend along strike of the successful 2018 drill campaign (see announcement dated 5th September 2018).

Of the nine holes as part of a phase-one programme, four drill holes recorded significant intersections. Best drill intersections include:

· 8m grading 5.9% CuEq (5.7% Cu, 24.1g/t Ag) from 27m depth and 2m grading 1.9% CuEq (1.8% Cu, 11g/t Ag) from 46m depth (VAP0009)

· 7m grading 2.0% CuEq (1.9% Cu, 11g/t Ag) from 163m depth (VAP0004)

Drilling confirms continuity of the mineralised Valentina structure 120m south of current underground workings, in an area previously masked at-surface by a shallow horizon of Atacama gravels.

Mineralisation is interpreted to be fault-hosted, dipping steeply towards the east within a sequence of volcanic-sedimentary units, similar to the deposit setting of the neighbouring San Antonio resource. Copper grades between 27m and 35m depth in VAP0009 were associated with both copper sulphide (2-5 % chalcopyrite) and oxide mineralisation.

Importantly, the result in RC drill hole VAP0009 is complimented by a twin Diamond Drill (DD) hole (VALMET0002 drilled for metallurgical test work), which recorded a much wider 17m visual intersection of copper sulphide and oxide mineralisation ( see announcement dated 13th June 2022 ).

Assay results for VALMET0002 are expected to be received shortly following additional test work requirements and delays in receiving ore grade analysis results. A second-phase of seventeen shallow RC drill holes has been recently completed at Valentina with results expected to be received over the coming weeks.

Sixteen Drillholes Completed at San Antonio Ahead of Updated Mineral Resource

Thirteen RC and three DD drill holes have been completed at the San Antonio high-grade copper resource to upgrade its categorisation from Inferred to Indicated, ahead of a planned resource upgrade for Costa Fuego in late 2022.

RC drill holes have in-filled and extended the mineralised trend along interpreted high-grade plunging shoots, with most of the drill holes supporting the current interpretation of structure and mineralisation at San Antonio.

Diamond drillholes will provide material for metallurgical testwork, key to the inclusion of the San Antonio Resource in the Costa Fuego combined prefeasibility study (PFS) due in Q1 2023.

Assay results from San Antonio drilling are also expected to be received in the coming weeks.

First drilling is now underway across the Santiago Z porphyry target, one of several large-scale targets planned for testing this year.

The Company looks forward to next drilling results from Valentina and San Antonio, and an exciting period of exploration drilling across its consolidated, coastal range, landholdings.

Reported on a 100% Basis - combining Mineral Resource estimates for the Cortadera, Productora and San Antonio deposits. Figures are rounded, reported to appropriate significant figures, and reported in accordance with CIM and NI 43-101. Metal rounded to nearest thousand, or if less, to the nearest hundred. Total Resource reported at +0.21% CuEq for open pit and +0.30% CuEq for underground. Refer to Announcement "Hot Chili Delivers Next Level of Growth" (31st March 2022) for JORC Table 1 information related to the Costa Fuego Mineral Resource estimates.

* Copper Equivalent (CuEq) reported for the resource were calculated using the following formula: CuEq% = ((Cu% × Cu price 1% per tonne × Cu_recovery) + (Mo ppm × Mo price per g/t × Mo_recovery) + (Au ppm × Au price per g/t × Au_recovery) + (Ag ppm × Ag price per g/t × Ag_recovery)) / (Cu price 1% per tonne). The Metal Prices applied in the calculation were: Cu=3.00 USD/lb, Au=1,700 USD/oz, Mo=14 USD/lb, and Ag=20 USD/oz. For Cortadera and San Antonio (Inferred + Indicated), the average metallurgical recoveries were Cu=83%, Au=56%, Mo=82%, and Ag=37%. For Productora (Inferred + Indicated), the average metallurgical recoveries were Cu=83%, Au=43% and Mo=42%. For Costa Fuego (Inferred + Indicated), the average Metallurgical Recoveries were Cu=83%, Au=51%, Mo=67% and Ag=23%.

Table 1 New Significant RC Results at Valentina

Significant intercepts are calculated above a nominal cut-off grade of 0.5% Cu, with a minimum estimated true thickness of 1.5m. These parameters are aligned with marginal economic cut-off grades for narrow, high-grade polymetallic copper deposits of similar grade in Chile and elsewhere in the world.

Down-hole significant intercept widths are estimated to be at or around 70 per cent of true-widths of mineralisation

* Copper Equivalent (CuEq) reported for the drill holes at Valentina used Costa Fuego averages (as no metallurgical testwork has been completed) using the following formula: CuEq% = ((Cu% × Cu price 1% per tonne × Cu_recovery) + (Mo ppm × Mo price per g/t × Mo_recovery) + (Au ppm × Au price per g/t × Au_recovery) + (Ag ppm × Ag price per g/t × Ag_recovery)) / (Cu price 1% per tonne). The Metal Prices applied in the calculation were: Cu=3.00 USD/lb, Au=1,700 USD/oz, Mo=14 USD/lb, and Ag=20 USD/oz. Average fresh rock metallurgical recoveries were Cu=83%, Au=56%, Mo=82%, and Ag=37%.
